Advantages of Non-Drilling Methods
To hang something from a brick wall using a picture rail system, you will need to mark the location of the track on the wall, drill pilot holes, attach the track to the wall with screws, slide picture hooks onto the track, and hang the object you want to hang from the picture hooks.
Be sure to securely attach the picture rail system to the wall and use the appropriate size picture hooks for the weight of the object you want to hang. If you are hanging a heavy object, use two or more picture hooks. Be careful not to overload the picture rail system.
